all around mountain bike for trail riding ($5-600)

So, I've been thinking about getting a new mountain bike for a while now, but can't really decide what to get. I'm probably looking in the $5-600 range, so I know whatever I get will probably have terrible components, but I'm more interested in getting something solid that I can build up over the next few years. I've been thinking about either a Specialized Rockhopper or a Jamis Durango, but haven't settled on anything for sure.

Any opinions? Also, I may have found a dude who can hook me up on the component tip, so any suggestions there would be cool too.

Probably won't get much for $5. You can get a decent ride for $600. In addition to Specialized and Jamis, consider Giant, Cannondale, Kona, Trek, Gary Fisher, etc. All of these brands will have similar offerings in the $600 range. I'm sure others will also suggest looking for a used bike since you may be able to find a stronger mix of components.
